There is Something for Everyone at the Stettler Public Library

Multiple programs on the next two Saturdays

Submitted by Crystal Friars

Now that school is in full swing we have so much going on that the staff at the Stettler Public Library can hardly keep track and that’s a good thing. That means that there is something for everyone happening at the Stettler Public Library. Why don’t we start with the little people?

Read and Rhyme didn’t take a break for the summer so it is still going strong. Join Lindsey on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays at 10:30 a.m. for rhymes, songs, games and crafts for ages 0 to 5. We have also added Baby Rhyme Time on Mondays and Wednesdays for ages 0 to 12 months at 10:30 a.m. Both programs are drop-in and are so much fun! So little people start dragging your big people to the library for a morning of songs and giggles.

LEGO, the block that has inspired many a person, is making a comeback at the Stettler Public Library. Come and check out the library’s LEGO collection and enjoy building the world’s most fabulous and intricate contraptions to be found ever! If you are wondering when this fabulous program is, come on Saturday Sept 16 at 2 p.m. for some LEGO fun.

But before you get caught up in the LEGOness of the LEGO afternoon, why don’t you come to the Kids Cooking Club on Saturday, Sept 16 from 10:30 am to 12:30 p.m. This is for ages 6 to 11 and you must preregister. You are probably wondering what the fabulous concoction is on the menu this time: it is a delicious afterschool snack!

The Cookbook Club is back on Monday, Sept 18 at 6:30 p.m. with the appropriate theme of Potluck. Bring your favourite potluck recipe and sample other wonderful dishes. Swap recipes and cooking tips and just have a great time. Call the library at 403-742-2292 for more information.

Keep Saturday Sept 23 open on your calendar because it is chalk full of event goodness.

The Stettler Public Library is introducing the whole family to the art of coding. Your children may be learning how to code in school and you don’t want to be left behind. Join us for Family Coding on Saturday Sept 23 at 10:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. It is open to all ages (so that includes you Mom and Dad) and we ask that you preregister by calling the library at 403-742-2292.

Also Saturday Sept 23 at 10:30 am, the Pokémon Swap Meet returns after a summer break. Play, battle and trade your favorite Pokémon at the Stettler Public Library.

We all know that the weather can change in a heartbeat so why not join Crystal’s Crochet Club on Saturday Sept 23 at 1:30 pm when there will be a selection of scarf patterns for you to choose from to help keep yourself warm during the fall and winter days. Anybody of any skill level is welcome to join us!

As always, for the most updated information please check spl.prl.ab.ca or our Facebook page for news of any other neat events and activities!
